My obsession with Lilly Pulitzer is too real. I remember the first time I laid eyes on Lilly. I was looking for an agenda for college my sophomore year and I ran into a Lilly one online. It was love at first sight. I bought the planner and have used a Lilly planner ever since. (I did skip this year, because no job equals no money, which also equals no planner.)
I bought a few small items here and there. A koozie, a mini wallet key fob, a tumbler, a mug, and I even had my cooler custom-made with with prints and quotes. I also graduated in style by having my grad cap decorated in Lilly and wearing LP dresses for my graduations, but I have never actually bought anything from their website. Mainly because their clothes are too dang expensive!
Now that I am officially a working woman (thank you jesus!), I feel like every once in a while I can splurge on the things I want. These items from Lilly Pulitzer are ones I'm obsessing over and would love to have in my wardrobe.
1. Elsa Top in First Impression
LORD DO I LOVE THEIR ELSA TOPS! This Elsa top in the print First Impression is literally the love of my life. Because it was the Elsa of the Month for February, I was terrified I wouldn't be able to get my hands on it. If it's still in stock in my size by the time I get my first paycheck, IT'S MINE!
I just think this top has multiple purposes. I've written about this top before, so I don't need to ramble about it any further. Just know I'm obsessed and need it in my life. (Spoiler alert, I literally just bought this bad boy and I am obsessed with it already.)
2. Buttercup Scallop Hem Shorts
Obviously all of these things I want are not necessary, but they would be nice to have. I think the Buttercup Scallop Hem Shorts would be a great piece to have in my wardrobe. Spring is here and summer will eventually be approaching.
I can't wear these to work, but I think they would be a good staple for the weekends. It's a gorgeous print. I can pair it with a white shirt and be casual, but cute because of the print on the shorts.
3. Nigella Boatneck Maxi Dress
What can I saw about the Nigella Boatneck Maxi Dress? Well, it's definitely dramatic, but I'm dramatic so it's perfect! I really don't know when I could really wear this. Maybe for a date or day out? Who knows. I just honestly think it's a very pretty maxi dress and since I only have one maxi dress, why not add another one to my collection?
4. Whitaker Wrap Dress
Originally I wanted the Whitaker Wrap Dress for work. Now I realize wearing a dress to work is not as practical as I thought. Sure, I can still wear it, but sometimes I have to bend and pick up boxes. It's a lot easier to just wear dress pants and a nice top. I'd mainly wear this for a day or night out.
I think this is the next Lilly purchase I will be making because I think it would be a perfect dress to wear for upcoming graduations.
5. Delia Shift Dress
The Delia Shift Dress is to die for! I mean look at it. It's simply gorgeous. I really don't have a place to wear it to. Maybe buy it as a birthday dress? Although I want it, it may be a little impractical.
I found this print in the Iona Shell and I think it would fit my needs better. I can wear it on a night out or I can wear it to work, just like the Elsa.
I'm not going to lie, I mainly want the Metallic Bow Tie Belt because I saw it paired with the Whitaker Wrap Dress and I feel like it's necessary with the dress. HA
2. Cha Ching Leather Wallet
I have been needing a new wallet since the beginning of time. I have been using a mix between my Lilly Pulitzer mini wallet key chain fob that's falling apart and a faux leather cream wallet I got from Ebay a while ago.
Don't get me wrong, I loved my wallet from Ebay, but the quality is poor. I want to invest in a nice wallet that I will have for a long time! I was looking at the Tory Burch wallets, but I really don't want to spend too much.
When I saw LP had a wallet in a color that would practically match with everything and it was for a reasonable price, I put it on my shopping wishlist. Unfortunately, this puppy is no longer on the Lilly Pulitzer website. Now I either have to keep an eye out for it on Ebay when I have extra money to spend or I can buy it off of a website that carries Lilly products. (Spoiler alert, I got his baby too! Bought it on Ebay for only $50.)
Words cannot express how happy I was when I got my first Lilly Pulitzer purchase in the mail. I don't mean that in a materialistic way, but it was my first purchase I made with my first big girl paycheck. I think being able to buy things that I want with my own money is so rewarding. I will probably always associate my new Elsa with my first paycheck at my first big girl job.
Are you a fan of Lilly Pulitzer?
